4.0 out of 5 stars Good solid, long last and VERY non-stick, 17 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Circulon Infinite Hard Anodised Cookware Set, 5-Piece (Kitchen & Home)
I had ooo-ed and aaah-ed over these or the stainless steel version to adorn my new black and white kitchen. Having spent a considerable amount of time and money in replacing all white goods with black goods etc and crockery and cutlery I wanted my saucepans to fit in too. Here I was disappointed. The saucepans are nowhere near black. They look darker on the pictures but are very much grey. In addition, I think they may be better placed in a farmhouse kitchen as they look somewhat rustic and 'blocky'. I wish I had purchsed the stainless steel versions now.

However, they do cook beautifully. Nothing sticks and nothing burns. When cleaning, you soak for 5 minutes and the food remnants simply float off!

They are quite heavy, particularly when in use and full of something. The lid handles get too hot to touch without protection and make it impossible to 'drain' vegetables etc by setting the lid askew and pouring out the water.

Just be careful what cooking implements you use with them. I also purchased the Circulon set of implements Circulon 5 Piece Tool Set, Black thinking they would be suitable and find that although the ends are silicon/plastic and therefore are good for using with these, the main length of handles are metal and can easily scrape at the edges of your saucepan if you stir and stand your implment in the pot or like some of us, tap it on the side before removing to ensure no dripping of contents.

Good, solid and practical. Not particularly pretty and fairly heavy.

I'm disappointed there is no anti-gravity feature with these saucepans.
